[BITE] British Isles Traveling Envelope

[BITE] British Isles Travelling Envelope

The British Isles Travelling Envelope [BITE] is an envelope round robin for Postcrossers from the United Kingdom and Ireland, including the Isle of Man and the Channel Isles.

A big thank you to @april03 and @Coffeedoff for all their hard work with this RR before

Please U2U your address to @Natea for your first time joining or if you move home. Thank you!

How it works:
~ Each group has a host and 4 participants.
~ The BITE host will create an envelope which contains 10 new unused postcards relating to the group theme.
~ No ad, free, handmade, damaged, discoloured or used postcards. Cards should be from the British Isles i.e. England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Channel Isles or the Isle of Man - unless stated otherwise.
~ If you notice postcards in the envelopes at any time that don’t fit to these standards, please report it to @Natea
~ The host will put a large sized sticky note on the backs of the 10 postcards with their username and brief description of the postcard.
~ When a group becomes full, the participants’ addresses will be messaged to the host which should be printed out and included in the envelope. The host should send the travelling envelope within 7 days of the U2U.
~ Each participant can take as many cards as they like from the envelope and replace them with the same number of cards, so that there are always 10 cards in the envelope. Participants should ensure that they update the sticky note appropriately with their usernames and replacement card descriptions, and transfer them to the cards they are leaving in the envelope.
~ Participants will ensure to send on the BITE to the next participant within 7 days of receiving it.
~ Please check that the correct postage is attached to the envelope prior to posting onwards to avoid delays and/or charges. You can check online at Post Office Price Finder. Applying return addresses is always handy too!
~ Hosts and participants: please ensure that you post a message on the thread when you send / receive a BITE. This is so we can keep track of where the cards are.
~ If a BITE is not received within one calendar month of sending onwards, the responsibility for replacement (as close as possible to the theme) would lie with the person the envelope was last known to be with.
~ Thank you for your interests and partaking in the BITE! Any queries will happily be answered.
HAVE FUN!!! Travelling Envelopes spread joy - I hope you enjoy your participation in this group !!

Hi, can I ask what the category mixup is?

Category mix up is an envelope of 10 cards each one from a different topic. Such as bird, animal view fantasy. If you choose a bird card it must be replaced by another bird and a view card must be replaced by another view card.
It is the first time its been tried in British Isles RR but is very Successful in EQTE
Hope that helps :slight_smile:

Hi Dorothy Good to see you here. May I join number 4 and host number 1 please. Kind Regards Brian

I can host number 3. I’ll send you my new address, if I can work out how!


I managed to write a message but cant remember how. Finding this all a struggle but going to persevere

As it took so long to fill a group on the old forum I thought I’d add date of joining :thinking: hope it won’t be so long on this site :grin:

I’ve just found the emojis :laughing:

Please may I join groups 1 and 4. I’ll send you a message with my address, assuming I can work out how to do so!

I think I’ve just sent you a message with my address details - have you received it OK? Having found a page for messages, I can’t see any outgoing ones there!

If it’s worked OK, I clicked on your name and then on messages, and filled in the message box. I’ve also found that, if I click on my avatar and then on the envelope icon, I can get to a messages page which includes an option to send a message.

Yes I received your message :grinning:

Can I join group 004 please :slight_smile:

group 004 is on it’s way.

I changed it from 10 cards to 12 cards as postage allowed. Hope that is ok with everyone

BITE 004 arrived with lovely cards - I am amazed Dorothy that you had to put a customs form CN22 on the envelope must be the result of Brexit :crazy_face: I wonder do I have to put one on before it goes back to UK :puzzled:

Post office said we have to put it on all countries. So I got a stash :rofl:
